Shopping at Hobby Lobby might be an addiction (I won’t tell if you don’t!), but when you know the Hobby Lobby sale schedule, you’ll save money on every shopping trip, thus totally justifying your addiction.

Also, download the KCL app and we’ll tap your shoulder when we see a killer deal at Hobby Lobby, because that’s what friends are for.

1. These items are always on sale.

These items on the Hobby Lobby sale schedule are always on sale, and if you’ve shopped Hob Lob for any length of time, you know to try to use your 40% off coupon instead of taking a 30% off sale.

The only time this won’t work is for items that are listed as “Your Price.” For these, you can’t use a coupon.

2. These items go on sale once every three weeks.

Craft items can be a slippery slope because they aren’t on a precise once-every-three-weeks rotation. Some items may stay on sale an extra week. Plus, the groupings of what’s on sale at the same time changes.

But according to the Hobby Lobby sale schedule, you can plan on the once-every-three-weeks jewelry rotation! There are three groups of jewelry that rotate like clockwork.
